A police constable attached to the Brent borough has been given a final written warning for swearing at a bouncer during a night out at a bar.

PC Emilio Sabatino appeared at the Metropolitan Police misconduct hearing on Tuesday to face allegations that he breached the standards of professional behaviour in relation to honesty & integrity, authority respect & courtesy, and discreditable conduct.

The hearing heard that while off-duty on August 29 2015, PC Sabatino was out drinking with friends in a bar in Hanover Square when he and one of his friends were asked to leave for behaving in an inappropriate manner.

“At this request PC Sabatino produced his Metropolitan Police Service warrant card and identified himself as a police officer, in order to use his status as a police officer to attempt to influence the staff,” a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

“Having been escorted from the premises by staff, PC Sabatino produced his warrant card for a second time. He verbally swore at the door staff and raised his middle finger towards them in an offensive manner.”

The hearing was a re-hearing as PC Sabatino had been sacked in relation to the same incident last year but successfully appealed and was reinstated.

However the police appeal tribunal directed that the matter be readmitted to a new hearing on October 30.

Chf Insp Tracey Stephenson of the directorate of professional standards said: “Police officers cannot behave in a manner that may discredit the service or undermine public confidence whether they are off or on duty. However, the panel were assured this incident was a one-off and out of character for the officer.

“Given his work record and the fact he made early admissions, expressed remorse and made appropriate apologies the panel determined the most appropriate action was a final written warning.”
